Verse of the Day: 1 John 5:14
This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.
Pray with the full confidence that God hears you, He is faithful and He is a loving God. God hears all your prayers and He answers each one with a yes, no or wait. The key words here are “according to His will”. You must always pray “according to His will” and ask that His will be done, not yours, for He alone knows His plans for you. No matter what the answer is, know that He has heard your prayer.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 63:3
Because your love is better than life, my lips will glorify you.
Our worst day with God is better than our best day without Him. God’s love, grace and mercy cover us because He is faithful even when we are not. We have so much to be grateful for and if we begin to glorify God for all He has done for us and count our blessing we would see that His love is better than life itself.
Verse of the Day: Lamentations 3:22-23
It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
Tomorrow is the first day of a new year, it’s a chance for a new beginning. Put the past behind you and start this new year with your focus on God. He loves you, He is merciful and His love and compassion for you never fails. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and see that He is good.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 100:5
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
He loves us and His love is forever not because of anything we have done or ever can do but because He is good. We can always count on Him because He never changes, even when we are faithless, he remains faithful. Man may fail you but my God never will.
Verse of the Day: 1 John 1:9
If we confess our sin, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
Unconfessed sin can be a stumbling block that keeps us from getting closer to God. The Bible says, The Lord is far from the wicked but He hears the prayers of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29) When you pray, confess your sins to God and because He is merciful, He will forgive you. Don’t let your unconfessed sin destroy your fellowship with God.
Verse of the Day: Psalm 89:2
I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you have established your faithfulness in heaven itself.
We can be assured that God honors and fulfills His promises. We can rely on God’s faithfulness which has been founded in heaven. Our hope and confidence in Him lies in His faithfulness because His Word is true and trustworthy forever and ever.
Verse of the Day: Hebrews 10:23
Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful.
As God’s children we need to hold on to the hope of God’s promises knowing that He is faithful. God never changes His mind, He never forgets and His Word is true. Even when it feels like He may have forgotten us, have faith and remember His timing is never late.
